AAA regularly organises symposia that address topics of interest and concern to the field. In 2010, AAA presented the symposium ‘Action Script – Symposium on Performance Art Practice and Documentation in Asia’, which invited speakers from around the world to discuss a number of issues around the subject of performance art. In 2011, AAA presented 'The Subject of Archives', a one-day symposium occasioned by the launch of 'Another Life: The Digitised Personal Archive of Geeta Kapur and Vivan Sundaram.'

In 2013 AAA will present an academic symposium to examine and historicise exhibition practices and platforms in Asia. Symposia serve not only to convene experts in the field but to build the foundation for a regional art history that will support its own cultural growth.
